. steve brown is live in ames with some recap. good morning to you, steven. there was a lot going on there, wasn't there? >> there was a bunch. steve, gretchen, clayton, all good morning. gretchen, got to ask you, what's up with the candidates from your home state? i thought minnesota nice was a law if your state. last night, it was revoked obviously and it had michelle bachmann and tim pawlenty spending much of the evening going at each other. here is yet one small example of that exchange. have a listen. >> she says that she's fighting for these things. she fought for less government spending. we got a lot more. she led the effort against obama care. we got obama care. she led the effort against tarp. we got tarp. she said she's got a titanium spine, it's not her spine we're worried about, it's her record of results. if that's your view of effective leadership with results, please stop because you're killing us. >> wait. >> you were governor in minnesota, you implemented cap and trade in our state. and you praised the unconstitutional individual mandates and you called for requiring a

this but nonetheless, the meter is running. >> certainly is. as the day ticks down. good morning, steve, gretchen and peter. it appears president obama should get out his bill signing pen. he may need it sometime after around noon today to sign new legislation raising the nation's debt ceiling. the house voted 259-161 to pass, to raise america's borrowing limit. immediately $400 billion and then by another $1.5 to $2 trillion over time. while the top senate democrat wasn't making any promises, he suggests that the bill should pass the senate. >> i'm a long time member of congress. and i never count my votes until they're cast. so i'm hopeful but know that the republicans are going to have to produce some votes and we're going to have to produce some votes and i'm not here to declare victory. we have to get this thing passed. >> while it does appear that there is enough bipartisan support in the senate to get it to the president to sign, one of the top tea party republicans in the senate intends to vote against it. and suggests that the $2 trillion in spending cuts and spending caps don't go far
idea, steve. i'll try to give you a sense of what's gonna happen today first before we get to the details that we have. the house will meet this morning at 10:00 and they meet again at 12:00 noon for legislative business and they'll have to dispense with several suspension bills before they get to the deal that was worked out of last night. so we expect debate in both houses as early as this afternoon or this evening. as far as the bipartisan agreement that was worked out last night, there's likely to be a lot of dissension within the far right and far left in both houses. let's get to a graphic that has details on the deal that was worked out last night. the debt ceiling is going to be raised $2.1 trillion through the year 2012 under the deal worked out last night. it will cut a trillion dollars right now with a commensurate $800 billion increase in the debt ceiling right now. and then later, a special committee of congress composed of three republican house members, three democratic house members, three republican senators, three democratic senators will work out another

a minimum, steve. >> absolutely. nikkei index finished down something like 2%. right now, i was looking at the european stock market and, you know, it's pretty much down one, two, almost 3%. and the dow right now is down, what, 238 points right now as we speak. so it's really moving lower. >> that's not good for us. for more reaction, let's go to fox news reporter jennifer davis joining us live from our d.c. bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. all eyes on the global markets today to see how they react to news of this s&p downgrade. u.s. stock futures have tumbled. asian markets down. what's going to happen on wall street? that's the million dollar question today. the news from s&p came after those markets had closed on friday. downgrade going from triple a status down one notch to double a plus. s&p says this is a reflection not only of the political gridlock in washington and fact that the ratings agency doubts whether or not lawmakers can come together to work this problem out but also about the fact that they say that debt ceiling deal last week didn't cut enough. s&p
and the dax had been down. >> important to note, we have this exact same thing play out monday night, steve, i'm sorry, sunday night, monday morning. we were sitting here and talking on the couch. the asian markets were very weak sunday night. last night, we were doing the show on the fox business network. i was sitting there watching, hosting the show. we went down from down 100 futures again but indicating a lower opening to down 200, to down 300. to down 350. we put the asian markets to bed. we woke up this morning in europe, again, floated the boat a little bit like it had yesterday. problem is when the u.s. markets open up, that's when the selling came back and it really -- the markets started to tank once again but right now, we're sitting up a little bit. up a little bit. but it's a great improvement from late last night. >> do you agree with the fact that it was oversold yesterday so we might see a bounce today? >> no, gretchen, because these are big things. this is the first time ever u.s. downgrade of american debt. this is a -- this isn't an overbought, oversold or just money is mo
bit about steve jobs as well. huge news. he put out a letter announcing his resignation. it's hard to overstate the impact this guy has had on computing and music. he changed the music business. on film with pixar, on marketing, on retail experience. this guy is a giant in american history. >> no, i think that, you know, we use the term giant too loosely. there's clearly giants and then there's giants. i think he falls in the real giant category because he impacted american culture and world culture. what he did, the technology and as you say music, it transformed how we deal with information. it transformed culture at so many different levels. he changed the face of the earth in how people relate to each other. he will go down in history as a real, real giant and deservingly so. >> he said in a statement, if there was a time i could no longer meet my duties i would be the first to let you know. unfortunately, that day has come. s.e., he touched every part of our lives. >> i think when we all heard he had pancreatic cancer, we saw the writing on the walls. we knew this day would co

actually save the country right now. steve benen is the man to be credited with this proposal, we'll be talking about this with steve in a moment. but the idea is this, it's genius, right now we are at risk of a double-dip recession, things going on globally in the economy are really, really hurting us. there's both an urgent, urgent need to create jobs quickly, to put jumper cables on the dead battery of the economy, and republicans are saying they will not let that happen. they don't want government action to stimulate the economy. nothing government can do to create jobs, so here's the pitch. have the white house take the several hundred letters republican lawmakers have sent to the executive branch from 2009 asking for investments to create jobs and let president obama announce he'll gladly fund all the republicans' request that have not been filled. michele bachmann, we know you say you hate the stimulus, we know you hate the idea of government doing anything like the stimulus act to create jobs, but remember when you wrote to the transportation department back in 2009 asking
